  • Supporting our learners to return

    Published 21/07/20

    In preparing our school for the return of our learners we have also analysed and enhanced our current curriculum. As professionals we have stringently researched the potential impact of the period of time out of school and also the different advice from professionals in relation to a ‘recovery curriculum’.

    It has been suggested that schools should implement a ‘recovery curriculum’ to support learners’ transition into school. Through this research we have been comforted that much of the advice includes approaches and strategies that we already implement.

    In addition, we have been in regular consultation with our families and staff to form our package of support to ensure the safe transition back into school for all our learners. As a result of our extensive research, we have opted to adapt our already carefully tailored approaches and curriculum.

    At Springside we already pride ourselves on a flexible approach to learning that is tailored to the needs of each of our learners. Undoubtedly there will be an impact due to the period of time out of the school building; we have ensured that our curriculum and approaches are able to support our learners through this and the transition back into school.

    As such, rather than a new, stand-alone short-term curriculum, we have ensured that the fantastic advice and research is embedded into our already personalised curriculum and simply enhances the offer we have.

    We have examined every aspect of our current curriculum, considered the advice, research and good practice from fellow professionals and are now in a position to present the enhanced Springside curriculum.

  • Annual Review Update

    Published 06/04/20

    Dear Parents/Carers 


    Re - Annual Reviews


    As you may be aware due to the current situation we have had to postpone a number of annual reviews. 


    For those affected by this we will be sending your child’s Annual Review Report home via email for you to read. 


    Although at this time we are unable to hold the Annual Review meetings in person we would like to offer the opportunity to carry out the review by phone. 


    If your review was due to be held between the 16th March and the 6th May and you would like the annual review to take place over the phone, please let school know either by contacting the phase lead on the temporary email you have been given or when we make our courtesy calls. 


    Thank you for your continued support. 


    Yours Sincerely 


    Melody Fierro

    Head Teacher

  • Free School Meal Vouchers

    Published 06/04/20

    Dear Parents/Carers 


    Re - Free School Meal Vouchers


    The Free School Meal Vouchers will be going live on the 20th April. 


    However, we have decided to continue to supply lunch bags to those that require them over the two weeks’ holiday. We will not be able to offer blended meals at this time.


    The leadership and Early Help team have been speaking to parents today and if you have identified that you would like a meal over the holidays we will be delivering as usual on Monday but at a slightly later time of just after 12 noon.  


    We would like to thank the parents who have already provided us with a personal email address, if you have not yet done so please email the temporary email address you have for your phase lead so that we will have your current email address on file. 


    Thank you 


    Yours Sincerely 


    Melody Fierro
